Medtronic has introduced CareLink Mobile Application for use with implantable cardiac devices.
The CareLink Mobile Application allows clinicians to access cardiac device diagnostic and patient data directly from their mobile devices.
The mobile application provides a new access point for the same data found on the CareLink Network.
The CareLink Network is remote monitoring system that provides data received from the remote monitoring of patients implanted with Medtronic cardiac devices.
The CareLink Network provides device information as an office visit for Pacemakers, Implantable Cardioverter-Defibrillators (ICDs) and Implantable Cardiac Monitors (ICMs) while providing both health care providers and patients the convenience of telemedicine.
Medtronic Cardiac Rhythm Disease Management business president Pat Mackin said their CONNECT study demonstrates the patient and physician benefit from remote monitoring, including reduced time to diagnosis, shorter hospital stays and decreased costs per hospitalization.
